Louis & Duke - The Great Summit


Recommended Posts

Has anybody listened to the Great Summit. This is an incredible album and was the only meeting between Louis and Duke. It's under Louis' name but the songs are all from Duke's catalogue. And there are some great performances here: Duke's Place, Drop Me Off in Harlem, In a Mellow Tone, Just Squeeze Me. Louis' rendition of Solitude I found particularly heart felt. These guys are not going through the motions, trust me.

The music sounds incredibly fresh as if it's almost the first time it was recorded. I just can't get enough of this album. Although Pops and Duke are obviously good on this, I found Barney Bigard and Trummy Young's performances on it to be the eye opener's.

Do you know who produced the reissue and did the rematstering? Michael C. and Ron McMasters. The sound is very, very good, like you're right there. It's a very good remastering in my book.
